BJP Leader's Rape Comment Gets Her Into Trouble, TMC Files Complaint

When asked if states ruled by BJP too had similar scenario, Ganguly defiantly said that such incidents were unfortunate and that she was exclusively concerned about West Bengal.

The BJP, according to news agency ANI, defended Ms Ganguly, saying that rather than focusing on the literal meaning of her statement, importance should be given to the subject matter itself. The FIR was registered against Roopa Ganguly by Trinamool Congress workers. The tribals in the area went on a rampage and also demanded arrests in the case.

Kolkata Police today initiated an inquiry against state BJP President Dilip Ghosh for threatening to torch West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's residence if the police tried to arrest him under false cases.

Upon being asked where did she find the data to substantiate her claim, Ganguly reiterated that what she said was fact.

Reacting angrily, state Power Minister and senior Trinamool Congress leader Sovandeb Chatterjee said: "She calls herself a cultural personality, and makes such comments". He added that if Ganguly wanted to gain political milage she could have resorted to other means.

However, the controversy took to a new level when the comments were countered by TMC leader Shovandeb Chattopadhyay.
